A large number of savings accounts do not require advance notice to access funds. It is worth noting, however, that instant access and no notice accounts tend to differ slightly.

Instant access accounts allow immediate access to money, while those withdrawing from a no notice account may need to allow a short while for funds to be transferred, or for cheques to clear.

Here is a selection of the current best no notice cash ISAs accounts.

The ISA Extra account pays 2.70% on its anniversary including a 1.00% bonus for fifteen months. A monthly interest option is available at 2.67% including a bonus of 0.98% for fifteen months. Savers can invest a minimum of £500. Interest is paid after one year, then again when the fifteen month period expires, then annually afterwards. Transfers in are allowed. No notice is required to access funds, although all withdrawals must be made by cheque. The account can be operated by post by savers aged 16 and over.

This account pays a rate of 2.70% on its anniversary including a bonus of 1.00% for twelve months. A monthly interest option is also available at 2.67% including the same bonus.
